ALL ABOARD... ALL ABOARD... !!!
But Hey This ISN'T A Train Or Some Game To Be PLAYED...
Or Some Kind of Cruise Ship Because This Here Is Calling...
You ........................ BANDWAGON Kids ...................... !!!

Who AREN'T Using Your Brain Cos’ You CLEARLY DON’T THINK... !!!
Okay Y’all Okay I Get That It’s Great To See That Blackface Is Now Up For Debate...
But Let Me Get This Straight And Make My Thoughts PLAIN...
A Lot of You Suckers Are NOW Making Claims And Causing A RUCKUS... !!!
Because... ALL of A SUDDEN It’s Time For A CHANGE... ?!?
When It Comes To Race Hate And Historical Names...
That Should NOT BE DISPLAYED ALL Over The Place... !!?!!
Well I’m Calling You Out That’s Right You... WOKE Clowns... !!!
Cos’ You’ve Been SLEEPING Fa’ Sure... !!!
When It Came To RACE WARS...
That Have LONG Been ENDURED...
That Have Been LAW ENFORCED... !!!!!!

LONG BEFORE Poor Old George...
And Those Blacks KILLED BEFORE...
By The Arms of The Law EVER Came To The Fore... !!!
That’s Right All You Hoards Who Chose To IGNORE How We’re Treated Like WHORES...
By JUDGES In COURTS And These Heads You VOTE For...
Who NOW Seem To Be SURE... That... Black Lives Matter... !!!
Oh Because of New Cameras That Clearly Now SHATTER...
These People Who’ve Said...

... “That It’s Just In Black Heads !
... The Idea of Hatred,
... That’s Supremacist Lead !”

Oh And By This I MEAN...
Those People Once Deemed...
To YES BE... “ SQUEAKY CLEAN “... !!!

Who’ve Been Seen On BIG SCREENS...
And Indeed On TV’s Like That Guy... Ali G... !!!
How MANY of YOU Have Sat Down In Front Rooms... ?!?!
And LAUGHED And CONSUMED The Kind of... “ COMEDY “...
That’s INDULGED Racist Themes That Makes LOADS of MONEY...
For These Media Teams Where Racism Still Breathes... ?!?
How MANY of YOU Have Sat Down And ARGUED... ?
That This Comedic Jew... Was.....

...“Highlighting Issues That Were Actually Cool And Satirically Shrewd !”

Hmm That’s Not How It Seemed And AIN’T Funny To Me... !!!!
Because Now It Seems That Those In TV Harbour Racist Ideals... !!!
And Have Done So For Years This Has Now Been Made CLEAR... !!!
But I Should NOW BELIEVE That Their Motives Were CLEAN... ?!?

When They’ve... “ STEREOTYPED “...
The Lives of Black Guys In These Shows That Were TRIPE... !!!
Oh And He’s NOT ALONE When It Comes To These Shows...
Where RACIST UNDERTONES Have Been Blown Off As JOKES... ?!?
So Now The BANDWAGON Is Starting To CAPTURE...
A LOT of You Folks Who Had NOTHING To Say...
AGAINST Shows That Displayed Subtle Levels of Hate And... Bigoted Ways... !!!

So Of Course Now The Gays Are Making STRONG Claims...
About The Racism That’s Been Unforgiving...
That Is Yes JUST THE SAME As The Hate That They Face... ?!?
I’ve Said It Before And I’ll Say It AGAIN Those Who Have ENTERTAINED...
And Have Earned LOTS of PAY Since WAY BACK IN THE DAY... !!!
Even With... Closets CLOSED... ?!?
Seemed To STILL Get On Shows Where Black Folks Were Told NO... !?!
Because They Could HIDE Who They Were DEEP Inside... !!!
Which Black Folks CANNOT Do... !!!
And Those Words Are TRUE So DON’T Get It Confused... !!!
Could We Paint Ourselves WHITE And Simply... EASE On Through...
And Be Part of White Crews I DON'T Think So Do You... ?!?
So Now The Bandwagon’s FULL of All Kinds of COOL Crews...
But... Is That The TRUTH People Should THINK It Through... !!!
Cos’ Black Lives Have Been SHATTERED... !!!
... LONG BEFORE Black Lives Mattered... !!!
And... MANY A Chapter Have Still NOT Been Factored...
Into HOW These Things Happened... ?!?
So I’m One Who Holds ANGER...
Who DOESN'T Feel FLATTERED By All These NEW FACTIONS...
And Their DISSATISFACTION That Is NOW SO APPARENT... !!!
Because Black Lives Matter... Because They’re Just JUMPING...

On The....
